    Each day we feature a title and/or salutation to Our Lady in celebration of Mary's month of May and today, on the feast of St. John Baptist de la Salle, we honor Mary with the title of Virgin most prudent for that is the theme of the epistle today as we continue Rogation Week leading to the Solemnity of the Ascension this Thursday. Again today in penitential petition we pray the The Lesser Litanies.

To assure our readers have a chance to read Griff's first part, we're leaving it on line today and tomorrow. Griff Ruby begins a series on "Accepting Responsibility" because over the past fifty plus years it has seemed like the Church is a rubber room where we continue to bang up against padded walls with no progress. It's time to take it to a higher level and, in the nefarious chess game the Novus Ordo Vatican II church of conciliarism has been playing, the key is the true bishops, few though they may be, who alone have authority. Symbolized by the white bishop on the chess board, if they trust in God they can make the right moves to trump any move by the black-hearted apostates who seek to sweep the board clean of Traditional Catholics. It's time to bounce out of the constraints of the rubber room and take action. While we can be but spectators in the final moves, we can act as loyal pawns and knights to help move the bishop/s into position to take back the authority they rightly possess by the power conferred upon them through their unbroken succession. It's hightime to checkmate the imposters. Humanly, only the bishops can do that. Griff lays out the obvious in part one, Is the Church Really a Rubber Room?


To emphasize exactly what St. Paul warned about, we are bringing you a retro series first penned by Stephen Grieve on these pages three years ago and, as it did then, so also now it should stir the sensibilities of those who continue to elude the inevitability that a true pope would never and could never do what the conciliar leaders in Rome have done for the past 50 years plus. That is why this multi-part series proved the basis for a sede vacante stance based on holy Scripture itself. Thus the title of his columns, "Our Scriptural Roots", all based on the divine Word; the same Word Who was made flesh, suffered and died for us, all prophesied in the Old Testament. With the Cross, Christ fulfilled all that was necessary for the Old Covenant and established the New Covenant with the ultimate Sacrifice on Calvary leading to His Resurrection and Ascension, leaving us His Spirit, the Third Person of the Holy Trinity to guide us with the Word and Tradition of the only Church Christ established on earth. St. Paul was filled with the Spirit and conveyed the truths of Christ and His Church in his epistles, specifically to the Hellenic regions where the root of his words are in Greek. Thus, in getting to the root of the meaning, Steve applied the application of both the Greek and Latin etimology to see what the Apostle of the Gentiles truly meant, specifically in 2 Thessalonians 2: 6-7. Previously he dealt with the restrainer/withholder; in the second part he delved into the meaning of έκ μέσου (phonetics: ek mesoo and in Latin: 'qui tenet nunc donec de medio fiat') in a series titled "Towards a Scriptural Brief suggesting Sede Vacante" with the meaning of that Greek phrase of Out of the Midst



For the fifteenth day of May, the flower offered to our Blessed Mother is the whispy MIMOSA with the corresponding Virtue being GENEROSITY. God loves a generous heart and one, who loves God and seeks to do His holy Will at all times, cannot help but be generous in all things, illustrated in the stamen of the Mimosa flower, fanning out in ray-like fashion to receive the graces God grants to those who are open to them and practice the cardinal virtues as well as the various virtues illustrated in this, Mary's special month for she is the Queen of the May. It is only natural that everyone would want to be generous to the Queen for that brings great favor from the King, Who is, of course, her divine Son Jesus Christ, to Whom we owe all allegiance, all fidelity, all our love and generosity. Let us pray the Devotion of The Little Crown of the Twelve Stars of the Blessed Virgin Mary

We hope to reach more souls through this newest technology of twitter in the left column. It is something that prior to now we have avoided. However, in an effort to reach beyond the choir, if you will, and to provide inspiration with short prayers and ejaculations, facts, links, comments and quips, we've launched out into the deep of social networking with twitter.com/dailycatholoic and ask guidance from the Holy Ghost to navigate others to the beacon we offer with the safe port of the DailyCatholic. Some have suggested we start a facebook page and our answer to that is we have enough on our plate with this site which contains well over 50,000 pages already. If someone wants to start a facebook page for SANCTUS/DailyCatholic we would be open to communicating with them, but we ourselves do not have the time to manage it.

The Fatima Prayers
My God, I believe, I adore, I trust and I love Thee; and I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not trust, and do not love Thee.
(repeat the above 3 times then bow your head in reciting the following:)

    O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in tabernacles throughout the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in unison with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.

    O Most Holy Trinity, I addore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament!

    O my Jesus, it is for love of Thee, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners.
